Roadside kitten covered in maggots was thought to be dead... but then she took a breath!
I love happy endings.
A woman found a kitten on the side of the road clinging to life.
"Found a kitten on the side of the road biking to work. I though she was dead as she was cold and covered in fly eggs. But then she took a breath!"
"I took her home, warmed her up very slowly, feed her, and washed all the fly eggs and off. The vet said she was 1/3 the normal weight for a kitten her (approximate) age. In short, she had fleas, intestinal worms, maggots that had borrowed into her skin, and she was severely malnourished. This kitty had her work cut out for her."
"Trinket, as she was now known biked to work with me! She loved the short ride to her "job" where she ate, slept, and looked cute all day. This is when she began to have seizures."
"Finally perking up! Her vet said the seizures were likely due to brain damage from her very rough start. Luckily, she grew out of them in time."
4 months and looking great!
"She loves to eat. Cat food, dog food, people food, or just people period. She will eat it."
5 months old and the master of naps.
And the master of cuteness.
6 months old.
9 months old!
"All grown up now! She was spayed and tested negative for FIV and Feline Leukemia. Happy days ahead. Trinket is one tough baby!"
"Bonus picture of my schnauzer and Trinket snuggling."
Thankfully her human mom was at the right place at the right time. Now Trinket can grow old in house filled with love, noms, and belly rubs.
